The Kezi Silverstone Trust

Helping children bounce away from a dark past, into a bright and sunny future

After many years spent raising funds and awareness for various children’s charities (including The Children’s Society, RASASC and Barnardo’s), in 2013, Kezi Silverstone made the decision to set up her own Trust. As a survivor of abuse herself, Kezi fights tirelessly to create awareness to help prevent the abuse and neglect of children and help guide them through adversity.

Despite how hard it is to speak of her experiences, Kezi continues to do. Her personal journey gives her the perfect tools to bring awareness to the long term effects of child abuse and to show young people who have been, or still are victims, that they can thrive, can succeed, can have their dream.

Her mission is to turn victims into survivors. Children should be cherished, loved and nurtured. Surely this is everyone’s dream for them? But the harsh reality is that for some children this will never be…

KST help protect and rehabilitate children who are victims/survivors of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, physical abuse, neglect, domestic violence and mental cruelty. They provide support for children who are victims of poverty, as well as protect and support children who live with parents who have alcohol / drug addictions or mental health issues.

We provide support for child carers.

We lend support to children who are victims of bullying/cyber bullying.

Our policy is direct funding. The decision about what to fund is made with great care and consideration and every penny spent is justified going directly to the core.

The Kezi Silverstone Trust goes from strength to strength, with ongoing plans to continuing supporting a domestic abuse refuge in Surrey and fund scholarships for vulnerable children to attend theatrical workshops. Not only do the arts provide an outlet for emotional escapism, they are also a proven method of developing confidence, self-esteem and well-being. We plan to extend to sports in the long-term.
